Sludge spilled on Pass Road in Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - For the second time this week, a W.C. Fore truck driver has been cited for spilling a load of sludge on the street in Gulfport. Wednesday's spill happened just before 10am near the intersection of Pass Road and Highway 49.

Gulfport Police said Tommy Hayes was driving east on Pass Road when he crossed the railroad tracks, which caused the sludge he was carrying from the Harbor to spill from the truck. It covered parts of the road from the tracks, east to Hwy 49, then north on 49 to 27th Street.

Police said Hayes left the scene, but eventually returned with a clean-up crew. He was cited for spilling a load on the street.

On Monday, a similar mess was made on Cowan Road and Highway 90. The drivver in that incident, Ozelle Addison, was also cited.
